'Birds Eye' type custard
« on: September 22, 2011, 06:20:02 am »
Ok I am going to just add it here  ;D

Thick Custard
This recipe , contributed by Janie Turner, makes a lovely thick custard (like birds) with no artificial ingredients, " my children will finally eat home-made custard now."

500g milk
6 egg yolks
70g sugar
1tsp vanilla extract or vanilla bean paste
20g corn flour exactly, weighed in a tsp at a time to avoid adding too much

1. Put all ingredients in the TM bowl and cook 7 minutes/90Cspeed 4
2 for an even smoother finish, mix 15-20sec/speed 8. Pour out into a serving jug

Tip: this is the perfect consistency for a trifle

Three whole eggs can be used.

That sounds better than 6 yolks Uni, might try it myself once you've given it the thumbs up. It would be good for Mum for a change from rice pudding.

I think we all freak when we see that many egg yolks uni. Good to know three eggs can be used instead.

I whipped this up for a trifle today and it's perfect. Just sweet enough and really smooth. I used 3 whole eggs and did the blitz at the end. Thank you x

Thanks KimmyH, I'll have to give it a go I've always been turned off by the number of egg yolks.

Thanks DJ.
May all dairy items in your fridge be of questionable vintage.
